Here is a summary of the course:

Each day will start with a range of classes on a particular aspect of music or recorder technique.  2024 technique classes will include:

 – Form and Function with Brian Blood – an exploration of various musical forms such as fugues, sonatas, in nominees etc.

 – Early 16th C Franco-Flemish facsimile with Pam Smith

 – A look at the challenges of playing with keyboard with Sarah Whomersley

 – 21st C solo repertoire with Annabel Knight

In addition to these ‘set’ groups, each day there will be a varied selection of ensembles with a wide range of musical periods and styles, including gemshorns, world music and jazz.

There will be a tutti session each evening for those who relish the chance to play in a large ensemble, including an 8ft evening. For those wanting a break from playing, there will be a selection of talks instead.

On the last evening there will be an informal concert, showcasing the two orchestras.  A music list and further details will be sent out shortly before the course.
